BA. Fine Arts First Class Honours 1994 MA. Art in Architecture 1996 As a woman my interest in female identity has grown from studying the frozen expressions on mannequins, to looking into the lack of self-esteem in many older women, through to working on intimate relationships between mothers and daughters. My work on anxiety and depression in ‘Voices in the Shadows’ delved into the hidden world of domestic abuse. Using memory, dream, loss, or emotion to articulate a narrative, my work often invites unsettling reactions in the viewer.
